Justice Sotomayor’s Beautiful Schuette Dissent: ‘Race Matters’ - COLORLINES

"And race matters for reasons that really are only skin deep, that cannot be discussed any other way, and that cannot be wished away. Race matters to a young man’s view of society when he spends his teenage years watching others tense up as he passes, no matter the neighborhood where he grew up. Race matters to a young woman’s sense of self when she states her hometown, and then is pressed, “No, where are you really from?”, regardless of how many generations her family has been in the country. Race matters to a young person addressed by a stranger in a foreign language, which he does not understand because only English was spoken at home. Race matters because of the slights, the snickers, the silent judgments that reinforce that most crippling of thoughts: “I do not belong here.” “

today on my lunch break I ran into cutie kaitlin and also my amazing accupuncturist and we had lunch together. that was the highlight.

even though finals are about to happen, i’m pretty happy. i saw the notes my accupuncturist took last week and one of them was that I had “repressed joy” so I’m into that.

No I'm not suggesting an abandoning of ecological consciousness nor even laws in principle. I'm saying given the conditions of our centralized system of governance and it's firm bond to the economic system where the only god is the profit motive, these appeals to Eco-laws seem pretty blind. I wasn't trying to hate on you, sorry :(

I agree with this. I struggle to know where the access points are to a real revolution; I think there are many but also few. I think it is promising that there are names and numbers now associated with big oil, which has been largely faceless, but I feel you on that the foundations of the system are not necessarily being addressed by a lawsuit of this kind. No worries! Thanks for the message.

my number one piece of advice is drink water and stay hydrated. we are made out of water. everything in us is made of water. and u are sitting there drinking a diet coke tellin me that’s all you’ve had to drink today. please get up and drink some water. for the love of god.

i’m stressed out rn how can this be a revelation to so many people

I literally just thought to myself how yesterday i was in a bad mood because i didn’t drink enough water and today that’s my first goal

this is exactly the weird i feel:

A radical reappraisalOn this day you will probably have difficulty relating to others, feeling cool and reserved even toward those you love. The problem is that you will have to spend today reevaluating what you are getting out of your relationships and what you are putting into them. You will have a strong awareness of yourself as an independent, even isolated human being, realizing that no one can really get inside of you and feel what you feel. Obviously, this can lead to loneliness and depression, but it can also lead to a radical reappraisal of your life and to a sober consideration of yourself as a human being relating to other human beings. It is necessary to separate yourself from the illusions that run through even the best relationship and to look at what is really there.

The interpretation above is for your transit selected for today:

one of the most heinous things about bureaucracy is their requirement that some documents be “untouched” by you. This means that you have to get other people to deliver documents about you to someone else. Of course, no one gives a shit about you so there is a lot lot lot lot lot lot of ass kissing and patience needed to get, for example, a god damn e-mail showing you graduated college delivered so you can apply for classes now.
